This film conveys the mood, feeling and sights of Puerto Rico with humor and emotional impact. Beginning satirically, island music and dance are integrated into an impressionistic film which shows the island's atmosphere and its land and people. About director Hirsch, his cousin Gábor Hirsch writes: "He was born 28 May, 1929 in Vésztö a Hungarian town in Hungary. He lived and made his elementary and high school studies in Békéscsaba. In 1944, after the German invasion of Hungary, he was the subject of anti Jewish laws, and moved with his parents into Jewish houses (May 8). In June, he moved to the ghetto, and on June 26th, he was deported with 3118 Jews of the community of Békéscsaba, along with some others from the vicinity to Auschwitz. In November he was taken with a transport to Braunschweig and liberated by the U.S. forces in Wobbelin. After liberation, he was brought to Sweden and repatriated to Hungary. In 1956, with the uprising in Hungary, he emigrated to the U.S.A."
